What Is Endometriosis?

This refers to a painful condition that results when the endometrium starts to develop outside the uterus normally on the ovaries, fallopian tubes, or bowel. Although not as common, the endometrium tissue can also grow outside the abdominal area. The tissue growths vary in size and cause diverse symptoms depending on their size and location. Endometriosis mostly happens during the woman’s reproductive years, with their growth stopping during menopause. The growth tissues might form scars or adhesions on the ovaries and fallopian tubes resulting in infertility.

What Are The Symptoms Caused By Endometriosis?

Moderate cases of endometriosis might not cause any noticeable symptoms. Some women might hence not realize they have endometriosis until they find it hard to become pregnant. In other women, the condition might cause noticeable symptoms including; blood in the urine or bowels, pelvic pain, low back pain before or during menstruation, severe cramping before or during menstruation, pain during intercourse, or vaginal bleeding after intercourse and abnormal periods.  However, the severity of the condition does not signify the extent of your condition.

How Is Endometriosis Diagnosed?

Early diagnosis of endometriosis enhances your chances of successful treatment. Your provider can use several methods for diagnosis, including an MRI, ultrasound, and pelvic exam. However, to ratify the diagnosis, the doctor might undertake a laparoscopy, a minimally invasive procedure. The doctor inserts a thin tube with a laparoscope to assess your uterus’ tissue and look for endometrial tissue.

What Should You Expect During Endometriosis Treatment?

There is no cure for endometriosis, but several steps can be taken to manage the condition effectively. Endometriosis treatment will depend on how severe your symptoms are and other factors. One effective treatment for endometriosis is hormone replacement therapy used to shrink tissue growth and relieve symptoms.  Medication can be used to manage pain, while IVF treatments might be used for fertility problems. Most women get relief by having the growth tissues removed through robot-assisted surgery or minimally-invasive techniques using the innovative da Vinci surgical robot system. After removal, endometriosis might recur in some women, hence ongoing visits are essential for keeping symptoms well-managed, particularly in women who wish to become pregnant.
